I’m really loving the @Adamyounggolf concept of differential practice. I can feel it’s really helping me to develop and refine MY swing and skills. Figured I’d start a thread where we can share some of our favorite differential drills and ideas. A couple I’m currently using and my notes:
Full Swing - soft wrists, normal wrists, tight wrists - in my normal swing I definitely skew between normal and tight wrists. I now do sets where I hit 5 balls with soft/supple wrist, 5 with normal, and 5 with tight wrists. I’m learning that my contact and ball flights improve quite a bit with soft/supple wrists even though I FEEL like I’m giving up some control in my swing.
Chipping - toe strike, center strike, heel strike. Practicing striking different parts of the face has helped me learn I can manipulate types of short game shots by which part of the face I strike.
Putting - face open, square, closed at address. I’ve found my speed control, roll, and line all improved when I intentionally set up with a face closed at address don’t know why it works but it does so I’m rolling with it. The scorecard doesn’t care.
I’d love to hear other ideas for variables to explore!
